Sticks & Stones is broken

The long-long delayed bar on East Passyunk is now shut down.

Sticks & Stones is broken

Remember how long it took Nick Miglino to get Sticks & Stones open at 1909 E. Passyunk Ave.?

Twenty-nine months, to be exact. The bar opened in November 2010.

Now Miglino is out - as in locked out by his landlord, Anthony Criniti. Court records say he owes $9,750 in back rent.

"There's more than meets the eye," Miglino said.

Criniti did not comment,

I hear another potential owner is in the wings to take it over.
